Japanese Cucumbers recipe

A simple way to prepare cucumbers with rice vinegar, sugar and ginger that can be served with all sorts of Asian foods. You could serve the cucumbers with yoghurt, or you could leave them just as they are.


  • 2 cucumbers
  • 4 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. caster sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced root ginger


  1. Peel the cucumbers. Slice in half, then scoop out the seeds using a spoon and then thinly slice into strips.

  2. Mix the vinegar, sugar, salt and ginger in a bowl. Pour over the cucumbers and stir well, then cover and put into the fridge until ready to serve.

You could also add garlic to this mixture if you prefer - 1 minced garlic clove will be plenty. This recipe serves four.
